Proximity Alert System

Description

Proximity Alert System is made up of the Personal Alarm Devices (PADs) and the Collision Avoidance Module (CAM). These devices are the essential devices from the HIT-NOT series, necessary for the entire proximity alert system to function.

Personal Alarm Devices (PAD)

The State of the art PAD systems detects pedestrians and prevent collisions at the workplace. The pedestrians wear this PAD system, and it contains sensors that detect the magnetic field mounted on the vehicle-mounted generator. Once detected, the sensor will warn both pedestrian and vehicle operator about the danger. 

There are 2 types of alarms. One is when the pedestrian is in the Warning Zone (Yellow) of the forklift and the other when the pedestrian is in the Danger Zone (Red) of the forklift. When a pedestrian is detected at the warning zone, the sounder will give a series of 3 beeps and the LED light. On the other hand, if the pedestrian is in the danger zone, the sounder of will give continuous beep and LED light. 

XL Personal Alarm Device

The Extra Loud Personal Alarm Device (XL PAD) is designed especially for applications in workspaces with deafening noises. When placed within 4 inches of a person’s ear, it registers at a minimum of 100dB and complete with a clip-on LED light on the shirt or vest. Just like the Personal Alarm Device (PAD), the XL PAD is worn by the pedestrian and contains sensing elements that detect the magnetic fields. It will then send alerts to both the pedestrian and vehicle operator.

The magnetic field is differentiated into two zones – Warning (Yellow) zone and Danger (Red) zone closest to the vehicle. When a pedestrian is detected at the warning zone, the sounder will give a series of 3 beeps and the LED light. On the other hand, if the pedestrian is in the danger zone, the sounder will give a continuous beep and LED light.

Collision Avoidance Module (CAM)

An add-on component to the Magnetic Field Generator or the XL Magnetic Field Generator, the Collision Avoidance Module (CAM) functions as a Personal Alarm Device for trucks. When it senses the magnetic fields from a generator, it will determine the close proximity of another truck and sends an alarm to the other truck that the CAM is near.

This collision avoidance module requires a generator to function and prevents trucks from colliding into one another. It is also a required for the MAC-A System as the collision avoidance module senses the magnetic field of the MAC and triggers an alarm to those working under the MAC of the truck’s presence in the protected area.
